Report: Delgado won't play due to hip tear

According to the Boston Herald, first baseman Carlos Delgado has a small tear in his left hip that will prevent him from playing with the Red Sox. The 38-year-old, who signed a minor league deal with the Sox in August, was examined by Dr. Marc Phillipon in Vail, Colo. That examination revealed the condition. According to the Herald, potential treatment options include surgery.

 

“He’s extremely disappointed,” Sloane told the Herald. “It would be tough for a human being to not be disappointed. He wouldn’t be human if he wasn’t very upset about it.”

 

Delgado had been unable to play since Aug. 15 due to the condition. While his right hip, which underwent a pair of surgeries, has been fine, the left hip kept him off the field, and now will prevent...

Lowell: 'A privilege to be in this uniform'

BALTIMORE - With the Aug. 31 deadline for waiver trades having come and gone with Mike Lowell not having been dealt, the 36-year-old said that he was excited that he would be playing what are almost certainly his final weeks as a major leaguer in a Red Sox uniform.

 

While a lack of playing time had led Lowell to hope for a trade for much of the season, the fact that he is now getting an opportunity to play with the Sox has offered him contentment in Boston. In the end, he was glad that the deadline passed without him moving to another club.

 

“Obviously, at different points in the season, if it was going to a place where I would have played, I would have been happy with it,” said Lowell. “But the fact that I’m here with these guys, I feel like I have a great chance – whatever happens – to finish my career in this uniform. That’s a really good thing.

Jaworkski: Patriots offense can be 'dynamic'

Joining Dale Arnold and Christopher Price on the Dale & Holley Show Thursday afternoon was ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski, who said he was very optimistic regarding the Patriots' offense. The former NFL quarterback cited the Pats' drafting of tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez as big reasons for his analysis, saying the presence of more tight end targets for quarterback Tom Brady between the hash marks will open up the entire field.

 

"I think this offense can be as dynamic as any offense in the NFL," Jaworski said. 

 

Jaworski went on to say that he believes, "If Chad Henne has a big year, the Dolphins could come up as one of the sleeper teams this year." He surmised that it was going to take a while for Seattle head coach Pete Carroll to turn the Seahawks around.

 

Jaworksi touched on the most publicized rule change for the new year, moving the umpire. The analyst wasn'...
